Nah, no way they beat PS3+360. Also, I think the Series S and the Switch are going to cannibalize the casual market that wants a cheap console that isn't the most powerful device in the market and that doesn't care about how old a machine is.

In 2013-2014, those people had to buy a PS3 or a 360 because there were no alternatives for them, now they have the Series S and the Switch.

Before Covid I didn’t think 8th Gen would make it. Then the bump made me think it would, bit I’m now I’m sceptical again after this low holiday. It’ll be close. In fact I’d say PS4 beating GameBoy is also in jeopardy.

That Switch is managing to stay somewhat close to the freaking DS never stops amazing me. Especially when it still hasn't had a price cut and is selling for what, twice, three times what DS cost by this point?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

The Switch just needs to keep with the DS for one more year, and then it will be much easier to get ahead of the DS. 2021 will be crucial.

PS4 Total Sales: 19,670,960

November 2020 is the 45th month that the Nintendo Switch has been available for. During the latest month, the gap in the US between the Switch and PlayStation 4 grew in favor of the Switch when you align launches. The Switch sold 1.14 million more units than the PS4 in the last month. In the last 12 months, the Switch has grown its lead by 3.91 million units. The Switch currently leads by 4.56 million units.

The PS4 launched in the US on November 15, 2013, while the Switch launched on March 3, 2017. Therefore, the holiday periods for the two consoles do not lineup, which is why there are big increases and decreases.

The 45th month on sale for the Switch is November 2020, while for the PS4 it is July 2017. The Switch has sold 24.23 million units, while the PS4 sold 19.67 million units during the same timeframe. The PS4 did not reach the current Switch sales until month 55 where it sold a total of 24.47 million units.

The PS4 has been available for 85 months in the US and has sold 34.32 million units. The Switch is currently 10.09 million units behind the lifetime sales of the PS4.

So Switch has sold about 25% more launch aligned, and gained by over a third of PS4's current lead in the last 12 months. Switch should win this fairly decisively in the end.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Seems Switch should surpass PS4 lifetime sales in the US during Q1-Q2 2022. But of course it also depends on Sonys actions with PS4 like pricedrops.



where did the PS4 vs 360 in US went ?
